July 2017 Archives

Safety measures removed from list of active rulemakings

Effects of the Trump administration's reluctance to implement new regulatory actions are reverberating throughout the trucking industry, and motorists in Illinois and other states across the nation may want to know more. In June 2017, the DOT quietly withdrew an ongoing sleep apnea screening rule with no indication of when the mandate might next be pursued. One month later, the U.S. Department of Transportation has backed away from the pursuit of a rule concerning the use of speed limiters.

Driver death rates go up as the economy improves

Although vehicles are performing increasingly well in crash tests, driver death rates in Illinois and other states are on the rise. In 2015, the number of reported driver deaths increased by 7 percent over the previous year. Contrary to what might be expected considering improvements in safety technology and vehicle design, economic forecasters say that an increasing number of traffic fatalities is a predictable consequence of an improving economy.

Fireworks recall shadows Fourth of July celebrations

In America, celebrating the 4th of July typically requires parades, barbecue cooking and, of course, fireworks. Whether you're taking your family to a massive municipal display or you buy your own for a smaller show at home, fireworks are a big part of how many people celebrate the 4th of July.

4th of July holiday ranks deadliest for car accidents

Auto claims from an insurance company reveal that the most dangerous days for summer driving are the July 4th holiday and the three days leading up to it. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety goes further saying that over the past 10 years, the July 4th holiday has been the deadliest day for drivers. Illinois drivers, and especially the parents of teen drivers, will want to take extra precautions or avoid the roads altogether.
